Ecodesign for Energy using Products (EuP)

Agreed in April 2005, the Ecodesign for Energy using Products legislation applies to all consumer appliances which run on electricity (excluding motor vehicles) and aims to:

  • improve the environmental performance of products throughout their lifecycle by considering environmental aspects early in the design process
  • increase energy savings
  • reduce emissions of greenhouse gases

Specific measures which define energy performance and related labelling are to be decided over the next two years on a product-by-product basis. However, self-imposed measures by industry will be given priority over regulation if they are deemed to be more efficient
